Dolce far niente

 

 
Noonday Heat door Henry Scott Tuke, 1903

 

Heat

O wind, rend open the heat,
cut apart the heat,
rend it to tatters.

Fruit cannot drop
through this thick air– fruit cannot fall into heat
that presses up and blunts
the points of pears
and rounds the grapes.

Cut through the heat–
plough through it,
turning it on either side
of your path.

 

 
Hilda Doolittle (10 september 1886 – 21 september 1961)
Bethlehem Pennsylvania, waar Hilda Doolittle werd geboren
